Self-Love Day 2015

A BIG thank you to everyone who was a part of Self-Love Day. I hope that you spent the day being gentle with yourself and acknowledging the amazing qualities you possess.

I was blown away by the beautiful selfies and touching captions you contributed. It was simply amazing to see you take a moment to share what you loved about yourself.

I launched the first Self-Love Day is on June 19. It is a day to put your needs and financial stability first. June 19 is also Juneteenth, a celebration to commemorate the abolishment of slavery in the U.S.

According to the Pew Research Center report in 2014, which analyzed data from the Survey of Consumer Finances from the Federal Reserve, the median net worth of white households in 2013 was $141,900, about 13 times that of black households at $11,000. For Hispanics the numbers are similar, albeit slightly higher, than those for blacks. In 2007, the median net worth of a Hispanic household was $23,600, and in 2013 it was $13,700

Self-Love Day is my small way of trying to bring attention to the need for financial independence and help you attain it through financial literacy and recognition of your self worth. 

Below are some of the selfies and the insightful comments you shared.
